Dr Z: Is it possible for a relationship to last and be loving between
a Taurus woman and a Sagittarian man?? I really need to know for i am
in love with a Sagittarian... Your answer is greatly appreciated...
Dr Z: I'm a Scorpio who keeps falling for other Scorpios... I know your
chart says it should be a "Hit." But from my experience... two
Scorpios may be not such a great idea. I've been involved with three
Scorpio men in the past seven years - and as much as I'm crazy about
them, we always manage to have huge difficulties. it makes me
very sad. Hmmm, I wonder why it is. Any thoughts?
Yep, it is absolutely possible for a relationship to last and be loving
between a Taurus woman and a Sagittarian man.
hey! What can I say? I feel your Scorpio with Scorpio pain! Although
I'll confirm that the Scorpio/Scorpio combination can be more than a
wee bit challenging and difficult... it nevertheless, worked out pretty
darned well for Scorpio Sun Roy Rogers and Scorpio Sun Dale Evans...
but then, in mentioning the Happy Trails of good old Roy and Dale, I
guess I'm seriously showing my age. (See the Love Menu section "Sun
Sign Compatibilty" for a list of the traditionally "easy" and "difficult"
Sun Sign matches.)
of what I'm about to pontificate about is already contained in the Love
Menu section entitled "Sun Sign Compatibility." But - based on the numerous
emails I receive asking these same sorts of questions - it obviously
can't be repeated or emphasized enough...
seen on this site (and many others) that a match between a Sun Sign
Sagittarius male and a Sun Sign Taurus female is usually not considered
a traditionally "easy" relationship. And nope, it's not traditionally
considered to be an "easy" Sun Sign match... or you've seen that a match
between two Scorpios is potentially a good match up.
Sign Astrology Compatibility?
There are a zillion popular astrology columns, books and sites "appearing"
to promote the idea that true astrological compatibility can be determined
by the simple comparison of two people's Sun Signs.
Libra lady - wanna know how to turn on your Aquarius man?"
How can I put this nicely? No astrologer (currently among the
living or the dead) can give an informed opinion of compatibility based
solely on two people's Sun Signs.
My First Time
Heck, I still remember my own sense of astonishment the very first
time I went to visit an astrologer... I had no clue as to how complex
astrology is and/or that all the various planets in our solar system
play a part in our individual birth charts and in determining compatibility.
The Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune
and (yes, good old) Pluto all play their own unique roles in that eternal
(infernal) mystery called love. In fact - there are ten planets, twelve
signs, and twelve houses (and more) that go into making up our unique
about it! If Sun Sign compatibility were the "be all" and "end all"
of determining astrological compatibility, then you (and everyone else)
would be compatible with about half the world's population.
a traditionally "easy" or "difficult" Sun Sign placement with another
person will neither make or break a relationship. In a real, bona
fide astrology compatibility reading - the comparison of Sun Signs
is only one of many, many, many factors considered. Sun Sign compatibility
is only a drop in the bucket... Sun Sign compatibility is only the tip
of the iceberg...
Columns, Books and Sites?
And all the columns, books and sites written on Sun Sign Astrology
and Sun Sign Compatibility? They're written and published because large
numbers of people enjoy reading (and buying) them. It's what you buy
and it was an invention of the 20th Century.
don't get me wrong... Sun Sign Astrology and Sun Sign Astrology Compatibility
are always a fun place to start. Sun Sign Astrology can be great
fun to read about! Sun Sign Compatibility can be fascinating to dig
into and explore a little! And Sun Sign astrology is how most folks
(including me) initially get introduced to the subject of astrology.
And that's, perhaps, why you've surfed to this site.
Sun Sign Astrology and Sun Sign Astrology Compatibility are only
a starting point, and they will never tell the full story about
an individual's chart or the comparison of two people's charts...
it would be great if love and romance were that nice, clean, simple,
and easy. It would save us all from a world of hurt. But... they're
But let's face it! Most folks simply don't have the time, inclination,
or interest in exploring the vast expanses that lie beyond Sun Sign
Astrology. For the average person devoting the necessary years and years
of intensive, purposeful study in order to decipher the labyrinth of
astrological symbolism and interpretations just isn't "in the cards!"
this is exactly why some folks are still willing to pay big bucks to
have a reading done by an experienced astrologer. As with any other
profession, the customer is paying for the astrologer's long years of
study and expertise in regard to a highly complex and specialized subject.
Having said all this...
The Step Beyond...
With both questioners, there's obviously some sort of chemistry
interactional "thing" happening. And this generally means there's
some sort of strong attraction going on here that goes far beyond Sun
Sign comparisons and/or compatibility.
there's (more than likely) going to be several explanations for these
individual attractions and repetitive patterns that can be found by
an experienced astrologer when applying various advanced astrological
techniques (such as synastry, composites, astro-mapping, solstice points).
hedged, just now, by saying "more than likely" - because I've occasionally
done chart evaluations and wondered why in the heck the two people were
One more thing: No astrologer (currently among the living
or the dead), even when using the most advanced techniques, can give
guarantees that a relationship between two people will last and be loving...
I only wish we could give such guarantees...
I could give guarantees, then I'd be charging the price of a small country
for compatibility readings and be rich beyond my wildest dreams! Seriously...
the huckster shysters out there that claim to have the ability (without
having it) manage to make a lot of bucks. Just imagine how I rich I
could be if I had the gift?
competent astrologers can point out some of the inherent strengths
and potential rough spots in a relationship. We can even look for indicators
of potential longevity and seriousness of commitment between the two
guarantees? Get real! Not in this lifetime... neverthess, If these love
relationships are important enough - then get thee to an astrologer
that can do full blown birth chart and compatibility readings...
